The Empire Ultimate Gear Bag 2006 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Redz and Dye Gear Bags. I actually prefer the Redz gear bag design much more so than the Empire, but the Empire isn't too bad.
I shoot a 2K5'd GZ, Excalibur, FL Viking, Texas Storm, Ripper, Ripper 2 and Ripper 3 Intimidators. I run a Halo or an Empire Reloader B (and now a Pulse) with a PMI Pure Energy or Crossfire Tank.
Very spacious interior with room for a variety of gear.
Not enough dedicated space for markers.
The Empire gear bag is a nice step up from what I was using before. I liked the fact that it came with a goggle bag and that the storage compartments were sturdy enough to hold the goggles (enough room for two pairs) without crushing them. The other side compartment is large enough to hold tanks, gear, clothing, shoes, etc. with some room left over. The interior design isn't so much to my liking. I'm not a fan of how empire has side entry into the main compartement with the annoying strip in the middle that doesn't unzip. The interior is spacious and modular. It has an insert for storing pods and another that comes out and enables you to use it as a gun mat/storage case for markers.
The disappointing thing for me with this case is that the interior doesn't have quite the horizontal length to hold multiple markers even with the modular inserts...forcing you to lay markers flat. I like the fact that the Redz bags allow more lengthwise marker storage (granted at other expenses). Beyond that, this bag is really pretty darn nice and holds a lot of gear. The straps hold up well and it rolls easily even across uneven surfaces. I've loaded it with 4 tanks, two masks, pods, gear, clothing, 5 markers and loaders and it moved quite easily.
A very well designed product. While there's room for improvement, it's a solid gearbag with a lot of room and upsides for use.
I had a gift card for a site and this was the only thing that i could find that wasn't walmart quality so i grapped it. First of all, its huge. you could probably fit like 20-25 six packs in this thing easily (with dividers removed) It has nice dividers for two of ur guns, a bunch of barrels, way to many pods, pod pack, mask, and about 79 zippered mesh pockets for all that loose hsit that we ballers carry around. Only thing i dont like is that... No place for paint! they thought about everything else, but for paint, its just kinda throw it in there where there is space left. In the bottom, i found, u can put 4 bags in, but then u cant stand it upright cuz it will get all smooshed.
smelly: i am currently airdrying it outside because it stunk up the whole house with the smell, well paintball-ish stuff. I dont care but the rents do... thats all
my teammates also use this bag and one of the shoulder straps broke when he was moving it.
definately beats out my old plastic tub, and utilizes space very well... NO PLACE FOR PAINT!!!
Jt SUV Medium gearsack (way too crammed and couldnt come close to fittin all my stuff
NDZ Blade Trigger
Tech T L7 Bolt
Max flo tank
Huge, very organinzed and great construction
A little heavy, gun padding a little weak,
Well i just got this gear bag for christmas and man am i impressed. I had been doing research on gearbags because the Jt gearsack just wasnt getting the job done. I made a decision between the Redz and this one. I am so glad that i got this one though.
This thing is huge. I can fit my ion with the air tank on it in the gun slot, then have room for another gun without a tank right in front of it. Right below where you put your guns is a roll up barrel holder that will hold up to five barrels i believe and it rolls away nice. On the other side of this is the pod pocket. It comes with slots to hold 14 pods and they fit nicely. It also has a slot where you can slide your harness right into it. The other great thing is the pod organizer can come out so you can use it without it being in the bag. It then has two pockets on either side that hold your goggles, cleats and whatever else you need. It comes with a mask bag, it isnt really that big so my axioms dont fit into them, but thats no big deal cuz im getting new ones anyway. I have my halo, a steel 47ci tank, goggles, jersey, and parts in one pocket. I also stuff my pants on top of the pods to fit snug. So i still have one side pocket to fit cleats or extra cloths.
The only real beef i have with the bag is padding for the markers is really thin. I think they should have made it alot thicker, But i think as long as you arent chucking everywhere you go you should be just fine so dont let that discourage you from buying it.
this thing is the bomb. I would strongly recommend this over anyother gear bag out there. Empire has made an awesome product. I know it will last me forever
FREE FLOW COCKER
all new internals
rythm body kit
proto 1piece barrel
free flow pneumatics
back up eggy2 z-boarded
48/3k pmi nitro tank
Space for everthing u will ever need
First off this bag is not $140 like it says. mine was $90 with tax (headrush). anyway i went to go get 1 and i noticed tht this bag is really big. when i set everything up i still had room for all my paint with space left...i love this bag and u will too if u buy one
Off road wheels
Easy to move
Holds every thing i have
hard to put together
When i fist looked at this bag i noticed the it was huge. It barely fit in the trunk of my car empty. It was also very hard to put together, there was all those zippers and Velcro. The bag has been able to hold all my gear, two of every thing to be exact.
This is a really big bag and if you decide to buy a new one you should buy this one or a least look at it first
